Handstands, headstand forward roll, and a ruck

Had a cancellation this morning and decided to play with handstands again and see if anything's changed.
It  has
I can't believe it but I finally got overhead and held again! Almost fours years after my TKR and losing my HS!!

it wasn't pretty, nor close to perfect but I got my feet to touch the wall and I got the weight transfered to my hands, something I have not been able to do.
I can see from the video I am still not moving my hips over the shoulders near enough.
Using the bosu ball helped a lot.

Tried a headstand and rolled out fast! My forward roll mechanics are still there, muscle memory at work but it scared the shit outa me! I thought I might have killed myself  or broke my neck or upper back!
No kidding
Haven't done a roll in thirty years! good thing I survived!

I also played around with some towel grip pullups. These are WAY harder than I imagined! I couldnt even hold my bodyweight in a hang! So I went to the gravitron and was able to hang and do sets of 3 with 70 lbs offset weight but it wasn't easy!

Fucking crazy.

these might be ok for my shoulders too. Getting my handstand AND my pullup back would be a dream
